LMUD Board Considers Rate Increase

How much you pay for your electric service may be increasing. During this month’s LMUD board meeting, the directors will review raising the price by half a cent.

The district is currently reporting under-collecting for used kilowatts per hour. If the rate adjustment is approved, you could pay up to 4 dollars more on your electricity bill, based on the average 800-kilowatt hours used per month for one home. You will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed increase once the board sets a date for the public hearing, which will be determined at tomorrow’s meeting.

The board meets at 5:30 at the LMUD business offices on 65 S. Roop street in Susanville.
